    What size trailer do you think I should get? It will hold a turf tiger 61 and cub 52. Those two mowers are 14ft in length together. I might end up putting a bagger on the tiger and want too be able to squeeze in two push blowers in the fall. I am going to only have this trailer for about 3 years and then will sell to get a 20ft enclosed. Im also considering what length and weight trailers sell more easily used. Right now Im thinking of purchasing a bigtex 16ft with 3500lbs axles. I know I should always go bigger but im selling this so I just need it to be comfortable for 3 years.

    i would personally go with a 18' trailer. I run turf tigers and they take alot of room on a trailer. usually run 18'-20' as my 16'er i cant haul 2 riders with a walkbehind comfortably on the trailer.
